God’s Got the Beat

I don’t know about you, but the real me is a little off-beat — not quite on the down beat, more like a half-a-beat off.

At work, I need to maintin a professional attitude. Letting my vulnerabilities show could be a ticket to the unemployment line. At home, I can be more relaxed, but does my family really know, really see, all of me?

I don’t think so.

God says, “The Lord knows who are His.” I used to think this meant that God can identify His own children. But I think it’s much, much more than that.

Have you ever met someone who really seemed to “get” you, someone who understood you from the inside out? It’s rare, but when it happens, it’s an amazing feeling. It’s wonderful. It’s freeing. It feels like flying.

And yet, it’s a small taste of what heaven will be like when we stand before God and He sees us and He “gets” us — because He made us.

God is the only one who truly knows every little off-beat idiosyncrasy of our personality. He knows the good and the bad, the silly, the shameful, and the serious. And more than that, He loves us and accepts it all.

It’s astounding and overwhelming. I am in awe of God’s goodness. And as His child, I will experience this love and acceptance forever. It’s beyond comprehension.

Truly — God is good!
